about

Captain Starr is bigger and badder than ever with their latest release, Supergiant. This assertive EP is an explosive collection of songs with intoxicating sounds and textures. Recording in various locations over the past few years has resulted in a heavier, darker soundscape than the band has ever explored before. From the powerful imagery of Smack Me Up and Lift This, through the sonic journey of Destination, to the auditory war of Inner Battle, this Supergiant is sure to get hotter with each listen.

about

Captain Starr Toronto, Ontario

Venturing into a unique soundscape, the Captain Starr sound can best be described as a blend of hard rock, funk, and groove elements, coupled with melodic vocal hooks. This 3-piece outfit was formed in mid-2005 by guitarist/vocalist Jonny Strides and soon found solidarity with bassist Joey Bauman, and drummer Matt Durante. Captain Starr has been laying down the goodness ever since. ... more

Track Name: Smack Me Up
On a trip through a foreign land
Identified and they know my brand
Pulled aside and they tied my hands

Now I’m going on a private ride
Head down or the pain applied
I don’t know why I’m classified
Hear me you're my lifeline

Walking through my open defense
Marching through my flowerbed
Angry are your actions
And they’re coming for me
There ‘aint no bombs in my pockets
So you’re out of luck
Well security is tight now
Smack Me Up

Never lost though I’m never found
Another day of echoed sounds
Losing life and my limbs are bound

Broken in and I’m broken through
Broken lies but the chains stay true
Another day and I bleed for you
Hear me you’re my lifeline

Walking through my open defense
Marching through my flowerbed
Angry are your actions
And they’re coming for me
There ‘aint no bombs in my pockets
So you’re out of luck
Well security is tight now
Smack Me Up

No way out
Where’s my saviour?
Cause now I need you
No way out
You can save me
But you detain me
No way out
Of what I’m feeling
And now I’m fading
No way out

Walking through my open defense
Marching through my flowerbed
Angry are your actions
And they’re coming for me
There ‘aint no bombs in my pockets
So you’re out of luck
Well security is tight now
Smack Me Up
Track Name: Lift This
Now I’m sitting here all alone
And there’s something wrong
There’s something wrong here

I can feel it run through my bones
And there’s something strong
There’s something strong here

Lift this heaviness
This is where it lives

Bloody images on my eyes
I can see the crime
Real as mine
Now the enemy’s on the line
And it’s fighting my worried mind

Lift this heaviness
This is where it lives

Lift this heaviness
This is where I…
Track Name: Destination
You pulled me in with the sale of the century
And you never showed me no empathy
The smoke is gone and its taken the mystery
From right in front of me

Close my eyes and lose my identity
Cut the ropes and watch my abilities grow

Where’s my station?
My destination
Out of sight I think I’m going the wrong way
Keeping eyes wide
I’ve got to look inside
And find a way to keep my soul
(Here we go)

You’re sweating gold while I’m fighting the dollar
And all the numbers say you’re the man of the hour
Extend my fist just to straighten my collar
I’m a lover not a fighter

Close my eyes and lose my identity
Cut the ropes and watch my abilities grow

Where’s my station?
My destination
Out of sight I think I’m going the wrong way
Keeping eyes wide
I’ve got to look inside
And find a way to keep my soul

All I need is
To believe it
Now I feel it

Where’s my station?
My destination
Out of sight I think I’m going the wrong way
Keeping eyes wide
I’ve got to look inside
And find a way to keep my soul

All I need is
To believe it
Now I feel it
Track Name: Inner Battle
Jenny says the night is young
But I don’t know how long she think I’m good for
Come along with me she pleads
But the one I need has got my number

Motivation calls my name
I remember all the times that I’ve loved her
But tonight she’s done me wrong
And I must be strong

Welcome to my comfort zone
Further than you can throw your stones

Yes I know
It’s my show

Inner Battle
Is where I struggle
Bigger, better
This feeling’s fatal
Inner Battle
My deadly rival
I need to release
Now I can breathe

The inner walls are well defined
No matter how I try to climb I get further
From the place I need to be
And the space I need to see is fading

Many things will stimulate
But my senses are so desolated
Try to cut this ball and chain
But it still remains

Welcome to my comfort zone
Further than you can throw your stones

And repeat
In defeat

Inner Battle
Is where I struggle
I may unravel
This downward spiral
Inner Battle
My deadly rival
I need to release
Now I can breathe

I know the answer’s in front of me
I’m struggling this time
I know the answer’s before me
I’m trying way too hard
I’m being way too hard on my...

Inner Battle
Is where I struggle
I’ll be here tomorrow
To beat this hurdle
Inner Battle
My deadly rival
I need to release
Now I can breathe
